Merrimack River Flies - About Us

As the owner of Merrimack River Flies, Ed Hudon has been tying flies for over 40 years.  We specialize in tying durable flies for:

  • Bonefish
  • Permit
  • Tarpon
  • Stripers
  • Bluefish
  • Other saltwater species. 

 Merrimack River Flies is located in Byfield, Massachusetts, and is only minutes away from the Merrimack River and Joppa Flats in Newburyport, MA. 


We use a team of skilled fly casters, to test our fly patterns. Each season we fish the waters from Maine to New York.  Regular trips to the Bahamas ensure our bonefish and permit fly patterns are the best available.
